Iceland's landscape is dramatic no matter the season. This visit to the land of fire and ice occurred in December, where sunlight was available less than 5 hours a day--cloud cover depending. But, when the clouds break, the northern lights dance across the sky providing a very mystical and magical experience!
Vestrahorn, on the Stokksnes peninsula in Iceland, has dramatic peaks reaching up to 454 meters (1490 ft). It rises out of a flat, black sand beach and dominates the view whilst a gentle clear lagoon laps at the shore. In the winter, the water turns to ice and provides a nice a reflection.
To say Iceland has glaciers is a major understatement. From a miles-wide moving glacier and massive icebergs floating by, to crystal clear chunks washing up on Black Diamond Beach--there is enough ice here to meet everyone's fancy!
